EXPO 2000 - Hannover (18.07. and 29.07. - 02.08.2000)
Twice the ensemble "GuitArt" was invited - together with a foreign ensemble, (this is condition for an appearance) - to play at the EXPO 2000. As foreign ensemble participated the excellent choir of the Tschaikowsky Music College from Simferopol (Ukraine / Krim). This contact goes back to the already repeated visit of "GuitArt" on Crimea.
At the concerts, "GuitArt" premiered the ensemble-composition "Three Misunderstandings on F. S.", written by the known German guitarist Wulfin Lieske as a particular repertoire-highlight.
At this occasion, the SWR - radio (Kurpfalzradio) did interviews and record the rehearsals.

The vast repertoire includes works of all musical epoques, sacred music of renaissance and baroque as well as modern music, jazz and russian folklore. But the main focus is on the works of the great russian romantic composers of the 19th century.
